Evan is a friend first and foremost, but last year we became co-workers at our day jobs too. Which, is just the coolest thing. It pleases me greatly he’s now a father (to one h*ckin’ cute kid, I might add). I think it’s safe to say 2018’s been good to him, and to games. And after a hiatus of making a list for 2017, he’s back with a surprising amount of games played this year for a new dad.
Justin Celani (of SlasherJPC YouTube fame and former writer here) brings us his list of his favorite experiences and enjoyable games of 2018 in this 🔥 hot 🔥 collab between Saving Content and his YouTube channel series, “Games and Coffee”. Co-branding!
Since September, just about every week, 10tons Ltd has been releasing their back-catalog onto the Switch. Last month, this concluded with Baseball Riot. Soon the Switch eShop will have 10tons’ most recent release, Tesla vs Lovecraft. But for now, there are a staggering twelve titles that in some instances cover a lot of the same ground, but variety can be found in each of its titles and owning all of it will provide you with a healthy library on the Switch that is perfect for home or commuting gaming.
Outside of gaming, 2017 will be be a year to remember – or one you want to forget. It’s personally been one of my best years, as I’ve started a new day job, bought a house, and feel like a proper-ass adult for the first time a long time. But we’re here about games, and what a wild ride and great year for games 2017 was. This has been the hardest list to assemble for the 2,017th year in a row, because not only did I play so many games, but there were a lot to like and even love – 2018 has a lot to live up to.
Ed has played a smattering of games throughout the year. This was a busy year personally for him, with a day job and getting married, but he still made time to play games. Here’s his personal favorites in a very specific order from this year.
Justin of The Justin Show ends his writing duties with us on this day, but fret not! This is the last of we’ve read or seen of him. Before he rides off into the sunset, he gives us his personal top 10 games of 2017.
Ed has been hard at work planning a wedding, but in the meantime, has found time for some games this year. He’s planted and harvested in Stardew Valley, cooking under pressure in Overcooked, and what else? Well, you’re just gonna have to see where these games shook out on his list.
To say that 2016 has been an interesting year would be a drastic understatement. The year has put us through our paces, bringing with it an unrelenting series of cultural events great and terrible that are sure to leave a lasting mark for decades to come. If the year’s events were a sine wave, both its frequency and amplitude would stand out amongst those of other recent years. Happily, I’d say that most of the big things to hit the gaming scene in 2016 were perched atop the peaks of those waves. It feels like those of us in the gaming community say this every year, but it truly has never been a better time to be a gamer. We’ve had some really excellent titles to sink our teeth into, a surprising number of which were deliveries on development promises that have been keeping us hungry for over five or even as much as ten years.
Klein has actually had more time for games this year, and has rounded-up a powerful Top 10 Games he’s played in 2016. Yes, a few of them are from his 2015 list, but that doesn’t mean those games haven’t done something worthwhile to earn a place onto this year’s list – though, there sure is a lot of shooting on this list.
To date, Harry has now only written two reviews for Saving Content, but he plays lots of games we are otherwise already covering. Though, he’s also playing games that aren’t on many people’s radar, which makes his list one to look for as it may present games to you that maybe you hadn’t heard of before.
The above is in no way a spoiler of Justin’s number one game, but it definitely appears on this list. Justin has been busy this year between YouTube, writing, and of course his family and other real-world obligations. This is why Justin has assembled a hearty list of games he’s played this year, and if you haven’t played something from this list, you should be convinced to start.
